Hat’s off to Wigan, I say.
Having been thrashed to within an inch of their lives against the magnificent Tottenham Hotspur, the Wigan players have decided to pay a full refund to every one of their fans who attended the game.
Former Chelsea goon, but now seemingly good egg, Mario Melchiot spoke to Wigan’s website.
“We feel that as a group of players we badly let down our supporters yesterday, and this is a gesture we HAVE TO make and pay them back for their tremendous loyalty.
There is not a lot else to say, just that as a group of professionals we were embarrassed by the way we performed, we feel it was below our standards and this is something we feel we owe to the fans.
Now we have to draw a line under the game, focus completely on training this week and bounce back on Saturday.
We are professionals, we will take it on the chin and move on but it’s important that we do not take our supporters for granted.”
It’s good to see a group of players taking some good, old fashioned responsibility for a defeat. I’m impressed and hope that they soon get back to winning ways and avoid the drop this season.
